I’ll be attending the Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention this weekend! I’ve noticed that this event generally goes underreported in the press–I’ll be there with my camera on Saturday and bring you a post next week covering the artists, the events, and the convention-goers.
If you’re involved with the convention, or if you’ve attended previous conventions, please send me recommendations for artists and customers with whom I can speak and photograph. I love talking to people about their tattoos–it’s a great way to grasp people’s personal stories and creative motivations.
Do you have any tattoos? Feel free to share your story in the comments section.
